I am using Ubuntu Gutsy I set the rt73 module to load, as well as rutilt -t to run at login, is there a way to have it automatically connect to my network instead of having to click the tray icon and click on the profile every boot? thanks

Yes you can, changing the command to "rutilt -tdp [i1et2t3fb]profile_name[/i1et2t3fb]" should do the trick.
Note that it must be run as root, so sudo may be needed.
You can also put the following command "rutilt -dep [i1et2t3fb]profile_name[/i1et2t3fb]" in a startup script, or "/etc/network/interfaces" on Ubuntu (and Debian). You'll find the complete list of option in the man page ("-d" means run the dhcp client").
